WE TAKE YOUR PRIVACY SERIOUSLY
When you visit Pronamics’ website, our website hosting provider automatically records certain data about you. Most other websites do too. This data is recorded in a log of accesses and includes the web address you request, the I.P. and domain from which you make the request, the web browser and version you use, your operating system and a record of each page visited.
Pronamics collects your personal information (names, addresses, contact details etc) when you purchase our products or submit a form on our website. Information collected is only used for the primary purpose of providing you with the services we contracted to provide to you. This includes advising you of updates/new software products, providing technical support and administering licenses.
Pronamics will treat all your information in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988, and the application of the relevant Australian Privacy Principles.
Please note that Pronamics will not collect any personal information about your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions or membership of political associations, religious or philosophical beliefs, membership of a professional or trade association or trade union, genetic data, biometric data, health, sexual practices or sexual preferences.
Personal information submitted by the user for administration purposes will not be made available to any third party. There is no requirement for the user to divulge personal information when they access our website or associated entities. However, in order to maintain a level of communication and adhere to the Terms and Conditions, this personal information will be required should the user wish to access the features.
The collection, processing and storage of your personal information by Pronamics is regulated by Australian privacy legislation and, where applicable, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).
For the purposes of the GDPR, we (Pronamics Pty Ltd) are the data controllers in respect of the personal information which we hold about you. As data controllers, we are responsible for determining how we use the personal information which we hold about you.

PRODUCT ACTIVATION AND PRONAMICS PRODUCT SELECTOR USE
When you use the Product selector to install your Product or activate the software, Pronamics collects certain information about your device, such as the licence key you have entered and information about the licenced Products to which you have access. Logs about whether a not an installation or activation by you is successful are also kept for auditing purposes.
THE SENDING OF PROGRAM USAGE INFORMATION
Some Pronamics Products give you the ability to voluntarily submit program usage information. This data is sent anonymously and can include the windows you access or the controls you use. This allows Pronamics to internally analyse the areas of the Products regularly use and how they can be improved. Sending usage information is not enabled by default and must be agreed to by each user.
THE SENDING OF ERROR REPORTS
If an error is displayed while using a product, you are able to voluntarily send the log files to Pronamics to report the error. Anonymous device information such as system specifications as well as Pronamics licence information and product version information are collected by Pronamics in order to identify the cause and best method of rectifying the error. Error information is not sent automatically by the application.
Personal details entered in the Your Details tab of the Options window within our Products are appended to error log information generated by the program.
No internal project data is transferred with the error log information.
When error information is sent to Pronamics, either via facsimile, email, web or other means, Pronamics uses this information for the sole purposes of identifying the individual user with the error, corresponding with them, identifying the cause of the error, and for the provision of information regarding resolutions.
